365 Days of Defiance, Day 143: "When I go, I'd just like everyone to say: 'He lived longer than anyone I knew.'"

"He wasn’t a failure. He made for himself a world fit for himself to live in." — Leslie Charteris, Enter the Saint

"We all have a responsibility in life to do what we can to help those less fortunate. — Roger Moore

The great Roger Moore passed away on May 23, and he will be much missed. Reflecting on Sir Roger reminds me of his first great role as a Robin Hood of modern day: Simon Templar, The Saint. Which reminds me of the Saint's creator, Leslie Charteris. Which reminds me of a great team of righteousness and justice inspired by the words of Leslie Charteris:

Panels from The Outsiders (1985 series) #1 (November 1985), script by Mike W. Barr with text by Leslie Charteris, pencils and inks by Jim Aparo, colors by Helen Vesik

Sure, it's a conceptual leap...but I think Charteris...and Roger Moore...would have approved of the Outsiders and their mission.

Godspeed, Sir Roger. With that halo already above you, we know right where you're heading.
